that is going to change some. there are going to be some people who see us, see me in particular as having taken sides. so i often get asked why did you do this? and i think the fact is for both of us we spent 40 years building some capital and a reputation and they're comes a point you feel like you need to use that capital because the stakes are too high, the consequences are great, and we both believe that we are had a really critical point in this political system. we face huge problems in the country. short term and long term. and if we are going to leach the system of problem solvers and in up with people who say things like richard murdock, the new republican nominee for the senate in indiana said yesterday which is my idea of compromise is on the move to accept my position. if that is how we are going to be faced with making policy decisions that are going to be very tough and painful for americans as all major changes in social policy whether the expanded government or contract government do they disrupt people's lives almost by definition and you can't make that work and create a sense

"the truth is, the nation's death is a sign of overreach. government is trying to do too much, and when government does too much, it doesn't do anything well. so a balanced budget is a reasonable goal, because it returns government to its proper limits and focus." this seems, susan, pretty consistent with the position that republicans have had. so is there more a statement of what the republicans want, sort of a show piece here? >> it's interesting, chris, we've seen in the last week or two some better, more biparti
're trying to do. but governor bush seemed to change his stance somewhat during a series of recent interviews prompting tough criticism from senate majority leader harry reid. >> let's wait for a few minutes and see how jeb bush changes his mind again. his opinion on immigration is not evolving. it's devolving. he keeps going backwards. i think he's frankly made a fool of himself the last 24 hours. frankly, on this issue, i don't think jeb bush is a florida leader. i think marco rubio is. bush has been elected to nothing lately. rubio is the leader on immigration. >> okay. joe, a new poll by latino decisions shows immigration reform is by far the most important issue for hispanic voters. that's by the economy and jobs, education and health care. >> john heilemann, let's talk, john heilemann, about your next book. bush -- "game change 2016." i think this may have to be the opening scene of jeb getting out of a cab in the middle of the dark, you know, in a cold march morning and walking into the "today" show when announcing that he's changed his mind. i mean, the second i heard it, i said, the
of their dollars when poor people are paying a disproportionate amount. so david throw said things don't change, we do. there's going to have to be some changes going on with individuals and their philosophies if we're going to bring this nation around to propelling this growth or we're going to fall down again because they are not going to move. >> when you look at the fact that speaker boehner wrote and this is an op-ed that says, obama's outreach is nice but where's the leadership? if we're going to find bipartisan solutions, the president will have to move beyond the same proposals as democrat democratic dogma. aren't they saying, there can be an agreement as long as everybody agrees with me? >> yes, he is. but he's trying to do other things with these kinds of press conferences and op-eds. by the way, you spent plenty of time with the president. i have, too. saying he's not a leadership is going to get under your skin. that's a cheap shot. he doesn't care. he knows who he is and he's the president of the united states. john boehner knows very well indeed and all of the republican leaders know

to you for tuning in. tonight's lead, the more the gop changes, the more it stays the same. today, the bright new republican superstar, senator ted cruz, put forward a bold new plan full of original ideas to save the gop. >> tomorrow is the three-year anniversary of the passage of obama care. it should be repealed. >> repeal obama care? are you kidding me? that's the big idea? for all the soul searching republicans claim they are doing, they still don't realize that they are out of touch. today the head of the republican national committee insisted the problems, not their policies, it's their tone. >> it's not necessarily what you see but it's how you say it and if you go around and say a lot of biologically stupid things. >> right. >> and you poison the well and you create a caricature or you allow a caricature to become reality, i think it hurts your ability to win an election. >> republicans are lost. they haven't learned anything. they are just as clueless now as they were back during the far right circus of the republican national convention and presidential primary. today, w
in terms of where -- between these two men. >> can i give obama -- go ahead. >> here's what could change now. i think part of the affection for biden that a lot of people have is sort of predicated on the idea he didn't really want anything. he was pretty old when he took the job. nobody really thought he was going to try to succeed obama as president, and the first term it wasn't really an issue. i think that might change. i think biden does want something. i think biden has gotten kind of interested in being president. in fact, this scuttle but that he thinks he is running. it's a private joke he has with himself. nobody else thinks he would be a very strong candidate, but that changes the dynamic. if you are tying to get that job, people relate to you very differently than if you are at the end of your career or helping someone else. the president has been making a number of cabinet -- there's a lot of talk about obama ushering out the form of rivals, and he is bringing out his folks. at this point it's a mixed wag, if you will. i mean, in john kerry, he doesn't have someone who is pa
. and that's one of his trademark sign signals. he'll never change that. >> all right. o'reilly often resorts to finger-pointing. but what does it tell you about how he handles conflict? is he a very domineering guy? >> it's a dominant personality trait. when people do that, they typically do it in a way to say that i'm this one who is in charge here. and that's why over the years we've seen that politicians have changed from like the finger-point to a more lighter point so that people don't feel offended. because when someone points at you, there is an opportunity for you to feel offended. does it mean you always will? no, but there is a chance. >> all right. tanya reiman, great to have you with us. >> thank you. >> thank you so much for joining us here on "the ed show." that is "the ed show." i'm ed schultz. "the rachel maddow show" starts right now. >> i've never been more self-conscious about how i talk and flap my hands around than hearing you talk to the body language expert. i have to be a robot now. i'm doing everything wrong. i'm showing my cards. >> we are very normal. i feel good a

signed the gay marriage ban into law now says it should be overturned. why the change of heart? >>> and awkward, party of two. a now "new york times" photographer steven crowley captures john mccain and rand paul only moments after mccain slammed paul's made for television filibuster. >> good day. i'm andrea mitchell live from washington. the stock market soaring to a new record high. the jobless numbers are at a four-ee low, and the washington post chris joins us now along with greg with the economist and cnbc wr this is your specialty, so let's start with you today. let's get behind the numbers, the good, the bad, and any ugly? >> most of bad. excuse me. mostly good. >> good, good, good. >> no ugly that i can see. the number of jobs created quite a bit mo expecting. if you look over the last few months, it looks like we're sustaining job growth from the 150,000 to 200,000 area. more hours means more income, more spending power, but the main thing -- the main take-away p is what's not happening. we are not seeing the economy crumple even though it was hit with big tax increase

archbishop of buenos aires was elected by the cardinals yesterday in a strong religion of changing die nam milks. he was selected on the fifth round of voting. at the secret conclave. his name announced for a crowd of over a hundred thousand people gathered in st. peters square. that was quite a sight, mike barnicle, to watch unfold. >> the theater, the theater of the church is unmatched, unparalleled when you consider the ramifications of what we all watched yesterday. hundreds of thousands of people in st. peters square and millions around the world watching this. everything in doubt until those doors opened. the theater of black smoke and white smoke. there was no red state, blue state, no chuck todd standing in front of a map announcing winners. >> not that we don't love that. >> i know, i know. >> it's all go. >> not that there is anything wrong with that. >> until that door opened, we did not know who the next pope would be and the significance of the choice is overwhelming as well. the pope crosses the ocean to latin america. first time it's happened as you pointed out, joe. >> righ
, was to cause trouble for yourself. even when a whole new vocabulary, wmd, homeland, regime change, freedom fries, coalition of the willing, was being confected and infiltrated into our national dialogue. the mainstream media was useless. even when the culture of the country i.t. itself, country music was drafted into service with twisting appeals to vengeance for 9/11. remember how you felt? no wonder cheney's arrogant to this guy. no wonder bush is effectively clueless. no wander the war hawks are shameless. all of them together got away with it. it was the people of silence. the newspaper editors. the network executives. the mostly respected columnists who know what they did and did not do who are wrestling now not with the history of the american invasion of iraq, we're all doing that, but their own history in doing nothing to ask the hard questions. persisting again and again with that hardest question of all. why? it had to be answered. was it being answered in principle and the language consistent with our american traditions? no. we're joined right now by nbc's great investigative c

of the desires of people within his own party, did put things on the table. changed cpi for social security, medicare cuts. he did, and they came up with -- >> he used the words. he didn't put a plan. what was the specific amount of chain cpi? what was the number? >> these were numbers passed between gene sperling and boehner's office. >> here is what i don't like. it suits each of their political objectives. i want to use chuck todd. i have been saying it all week on the radio, but he said it beautifully. he noted this in "first read" this morning. yes, both sides are kicking and screaming publicly, and, yes, these cuts will impact people's livelihoods, but if you're a republican who wants to cut spending, you're getting your spending cuts. if you're a democrat who either wants to reduce defense spending or ensure that all the cuts aren't targeted only at social programs, you're getting your wish. this is perhaps the biggest reason why these cuts are going into effect -- at the end of the day they were better than the alternative, for republicans raising tax levels and eliminating loophole
been an attitude change? >> there has definitely been an attitude change in south carolina. and we see it moving rapidly, as a matter of fact. now south carolina is a state that does not -- does not allow same-sex marriage. but we'll see where that takes us in ten years. there is a definite movement, a definite change of attitude in south carolina, yes. >> okay. let's say you win the primary, and then it's, of course, i would pick maybe mark sanford on the other side. i don't know what the polling is there, but it would certainly be great to see you defeat him. could you defeat him? >> well, ed, let me be really clear about something first. we have got to get through the first primary, march 19th. and i do have -- i do have a competitor, as you mentioned. and so right now this campaign is focused on getting through that primary, getting the vote out, and winning the democratic seat. and as you so aptly mentioned, there are so many republicans at this point that we have no idea who is going to shake out. and until that shakes out, we're going to keep our eye on the prize. >> all right.
passengers every day and they're rightly protesting this bone-headed change as is the federal law enforcement officers association. and how long until the nra get in and says, hey, air travelers being unarmed is a threat to their civil liberties. most of the policy change makes sense. now you can bring on board souvenir baseball bats, pool cues, golf clubs, but still no box cutters, no razor blades, no knives that don't fold and no water from outside because stuff. some said the change to allow small pocket knives comes because they're not dangerous. oh. others said small knives are hard for the tsa to detect. so allowing them lowers the tsa's failure rate. oh, that, boys and girls, is what you call moving the goalposts. the tsa's job is to make us safer. this does not do that. and frankly it contributes to my sense that they're doing this sort of kabuki theater or security theater. the faa is also not keeping us safer with the absurd continuation of the ban on using electronic devices during takeoff and landing. why can i read a book, a printed book, but not an ereader? because it emits elec
, with their opposition counterparts. there's no, there's no comparison. what we do have is a change in circumstances. because as you know, we've been governing from crisis to crisis with manufactured deadlines now, repeatedly whether it was the debt ceiling negotiations or the super committee. or the fiscal cliff or the sequester deadline. now because republicans chose to embrace the sequester, let it take place, let it be implemented with all its negative impacts, that's a negative. but the fact is it means we don't have the looming deadline that requires you know, huddled negotiations with congressional leadership to try to produce an outcome before you know, something terrible happens at midnight on any given day. we now are engaged in what's called regular order. budget process that includes the house passing a budget resolution, the senate passing its budget resolution. the president submitting his budget and then hopefully, hopefully through conference you know, through meetings of the house and the senate, you know, some kind of compromise emerges that represents the balance that the american

it a federal crime to move guns unlawfully against state line and changing things on books there. something people will talk about as a success if that gets through. so much focus on background checks. one of the big questions from people who are still hesitant about that is what would it actually do in a practical sense if you've got a neighbor-to-neighbor selling a weapon or a family member to another and how would that work in practical terms. the idea of background checks has broiad support but it gets down to the specifics. watch for the senators from red states up for re-election and the pressure is greatest on them. they are away two weeks now from washington, back home, and there will be pressure on them. they will hear from their constituents about what to do from this. if you don't have much support, if any, among republicans, you need those democrats to get it through. >> hey, mark, give me a sense of harry reid's role in this. he wants to keep that title senate majority leader. navigating through these ice floes of this. >> it's already on the side of those who would like to see
